Is there a way to broadcast the AP name via the beacon packet. I noticed that there is a flag in Airwave, but only for version 188.8.131.52. There is no version 6.1.4 for the controller network.
Will there be a feature add in the controller code?
Is there also a way to determine AP name via AirMagnet or OmniPeek?

AOS 6.2 has this feature;
Under the WLAN SSID profile;
(Aruba650) (SSID Profile "test") #adver?
advertise-ap-name If enabled, APs that are part of this VAP will
broadcast the AP Name information in the beacons
advertise-location If enabled, APs that are part of this VAP will
broadcast their GPS coordinates in the beacons and
probe response frames
(Aruba650) (SSID Profile "test") #adver
As for adding a name not sure but in Wireshark you could add the BSSID MAC address to the ethers file.
